While at Luwafu police station, Akakunda narrated that Buchaman was resting in his muzigo while she was busy preparing meat for her husband at her verandah when the former member and Ghetto vice president of the sounding fire base crew came out of his house and ordered her to stop cooking while claiming that meat irritates him.
According to Akakunda, she requested him to give her five minutes to take the meat inside the house to proceed with her cooking.
However, Buchaman ran out of patience that he decided to pour the meat and at the same time beat her up claiming that true ‘rasfarians’ don’t eat or smell meat. Police together with local security officials intervened in the matter and Buchaman was arrested that led him into spending a night behind bars.
Buchaman was tasked to pay Akakunda Sh100,000 as compensation for her meat and medication. Buchaman stated that he had no cash on him but made phone calls to his friends for rescue
